Tupi to implement P2.7-M worth of peace projects from DAR

piaKORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato,  July 24  (PIA) 12 – Nine  barangays  in nearby Tupi town are set  to  benefit  from  various projects as the  Department of Agrarian  recently approved the release  of  P2.7 M various  rural  projects.

The barangays were adopted by DAR under its area component of the national government’s PAyapa at MAsaganang PamayaNAn (PAMANA) program that aims to provide these barangays with community-based projects to bring genuine peace and development.

DAR Regional Director Nasser Musali said  “the program intends to reduce poverty, improve governance and empower communities in situations of conflict.”

Under the PAMANA grant, “each beneficiary (barangay) will receive P300,000 to fund the implementation of their proposed community projects,” Musali said.

The projects that may be funded by the program include connectivity systems, basic services for economic development, agricultural services and industry investments, economic investments in indigenous people’s areas, disaster-preparedness and climate change adaptation interventions.

The municipal government of Tupi and DAR signed a memorandum of agreement in April last year for the implementation of the PAMANA program.

Tupi Mayor Reynaldo Tamayo said the grant forms part of the area’s initial allocation under the agrarian reform area component of the PAMANA program.

The mayor said five barangays — Crossing Rubber, Kalkam, Lunen, Palian and Tubeng —  have proposed for the renovation and construction of multi-purpose buildings.

Meawhile,  Barangays Acmonan, Bunao and Simbo pushed for the rehabilitation of their potable water systems while Barangay Cebuano proposed for the replacement of the submersible water pump in one of its communities.

Once the funds are released, Tamayo said they would immediately proceed with the bidding of the contracts for the identified projects.

“The implementation phase for these projects will likely begin within the third quarter of the year,” Tamayo said.

PAMANA is the government’s program and framework for peace and development in areas affected by conflict and communities covered by existing peace agreements.
